What’s the one food that if put down in front of you, you wouldn’t be able to stop eating? If you said pizza, collect a pie as your prize.
According to a study of 518 participants by researchers at the University of Michigan, a slice topped the list of the most addicting foods.
Rounding out the top five were chocolate, chips, cookies and ice cream, while dinner rolls came in at lucky number 13, sandwiched between fried chicken and popcorn.
Experts say the amount of processing the food undergoes can predict how addicting it might be, revealing the ingredients activate the pleasure centers
in our brains.
